During Catholic Schools Week, Jan. 29 to Feb. 4, we celebrate what makes our Catholic schools special places of learning, faith formation and growth. Each day, we recognize a different member of the Catholic schools "family."

Today, we honor our volunteers. Here's a brief testimonial from Nichole Anderson, a volunteer at Guardian Angels School in Clawson.

I’m one of those volunteers willing to step into any position. I do lunch duties, mom-to-mom volunteer, Santa shop, teachers helping with parties — any fundraiser I help with. I’m just the go-to volunteer.

I love working at the school here; I actually went to Guardian Angels. I loved going here. It was exciting when my son started going here; it was a chance to give to the school that has given me a lot. Also the kids here are just amazing. It is so fun to work with them, and sometimes you have a lot going on in your life, and it’s just amazing to be with them.

The last few years of my personal life have been tough, and being a volunteer has given me a break in my life, something to look forward to. When I'm here, I’m happy to be involved.
